Before hair grew naturally, humans covered their bare scalps with hats crafted from leaves or used honey to secure toupees made of ants. Reward soft, secure noggin adornments with today's Groupon: for $70, you get a punch card for four blowouts and shampoos at Color and Hair Connection in Gaithersburg, Maryland (a $140 value). Groupon customers have six months to redeem their punch card.
Inside Color and Hair Connection's light, eggshell-hued walls dotted with eastern calligraphy, Brenda A. Vernon calms rebellious follicles with relaxing blowout treatments. During each of four doting sessions, stylists begin whipping hair into shape with a lathering, restorative shampoo and a demand that each follicle do a single pull-up. Then heads heat up under the soft hum of a blow-dryer, where manes shed their moisture and gain a luxurious shine. Finally, hair tamers transform unruly locks into well-mannered coifs, styling elegant 'dos for upcoming dates, evenings on the town, or parties to celebrate a pet's promotion to honorary child.
